Prunus serrula and Prunus maakii

 

Round-headed deciduous tree with truly magnificent bark and stems which are shining copper-brown with peeling circles.

The pendulous mid-green leaves contrast well against the coppery stems. With such outstanding stem and bark colourisation, this tree is spectacular all year. In spring, the tree bears bowl-shaped white flowers 2cm across.

Height : (6m X 6m) in 20 years, ultimate height  (9m)

Prefers a fertile, well drained soil. Fully hardy, but prefers sheltered position.

Needs full sun for best development. Develops girdling roots very easily. Care must be taken during production and transplanting to ensure that roots are not curled in early development.

Often has weak crotches so may require cabling if not properly pruned and trained while a young tree


Prunus maakii has the better head, and although a lighter bark it is just as striking.
